The Villages were founded over 30 years ago creating a community focused on life after retirement.  Now spanning 4 zip codes, the Villages have grown from a small development to a full community.


The Villages offers it’s residents a golf cart friendly environment.  Commonly called “the bubble” residents are able to access just about everything using special paths and golf cart lanes on the roads.  Tunnels and bridges allow safe passage below and over busy interchanges.

There are 3 Town Squares (Paddock, Lake Sumter Landing and Spanish Springs).  Each square provides entertainment 365 days a year and are surrounded by restaurants and stores. With entertainment, regular markets and many other things to do the squares are the central place of our community.

Activities are a major draw to the Villages.  With over 30 executive golf courses and over 60 public swimming pools, Villagers have diversity and options.  In addition to the executive golf courses, there are over 5 traditional golf courses located around their “Country Clubs”. Fun for all ages!








Located at the recreation facilities and local pools, Villagers and guests will find activities such as Bocci, Shuffle Board, Tennis and Pickle-ball.   Horse shoe pits as well as bean toss can also be found.  We even have a polo field!



Within and outside of the Villages, all accessible via golf cart, stores, restaurants, and a plethora of other merchants are located to tend to all types of needs.  Multiple fire departments are located within the Villages boundaries for prompt response and additional security is provided by both local police departments and a community watch program with vehicles traveling the streets regularly.

Within the boundaries multiple doctors, medical facilities and even a hospital are available.  Most of these physicians are reachable by golf cart!
